Wallace Middle School | Seventh Graders Visit Career Expo

A lady is speaking to a group of students about CPR.On September 25, seventh grade students from Wallace Middle School attended the Career Expo with United Way at the Washington County Fairgrounds. Students were able to visit with several different employers throughout the region focusing on the 16 Career Clusters.

Students were able to participate in several hands-on activities such as drafting, coding, performing CPR, climbing a telephone pole, and conducting a chemistry experiment.  Students were able to inquire with employers about specific skills and education needed for each career.  All seventh graders at Wallace Middle School had the opportunity to complete an interest inventory before attending the Career Expo and review the different career clusters and pathways to prepare them for this event.  Students and teachers enjoyed learning about all of the different careers offered in our region.
